Where music comes from – Franz Kafka QUOTES FOR WRITERS (and people who like quotes)

music - violinEverything that lives is in flux. Everything that lives emits sound. But we only perceive a part of it. We do not hear the circulation of the blood, the growth and decay of our bodily tissue, the sound of our chemical processes. But our delicate organic cells, the fibres of brain and nerves and skin are impregnated with these inaudible sounds. They vibrate in response to their environment. This is the foundation of the power of music.
Franz Kafka

      Magnificent seems the best way to describe Kafka’s writing. Have you clicked on the Marquez quote (link above)? Reading Kafka gave him permission to write the stories he wanted to write…

      Yes, true and right and absolutely what I feel, but I never thought of it in this way until I read his words

    Reblogged this on Wind Eggs and commented:
    According to string theory, the universe is composed of vibrating strings. Music and the universe are one. The question is whether or not the strings harmonize.

    Here is Kafka’s take: (a man, who placed his characters into an alien and disharmonious universe, and still finds a place for the elegance of music.)
    Thanks to Bridget Whelan.
